Özet

Background/Aims: Proton density fat fraction (PDFF) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can be a useful technique for volumetric measurements of liver fat. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the correlation between liver fat fraction (LFF) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels in children who are overweight and obese.
